HP has always made efforts towards sustainability within their company but earlier this year the Imaging and Printing Group released the Deskjet D2660, the first inkjet printer from HP made from 50 percent recycled materials.
Today, we have an exciting first look at this “green” little printer and next week we will have a full review so make sure to check it out.

BUILD AND DESIGN
The Deskjet D2660 has a small, sleek design that takes up approximately 17.83 x 8.15 x 6.77 inches and weighs barely over six pounds.
It is done completely in black – which I like a lot – with a small HP logo on the lid.
The small, three button control panel is located on the top left of the machine. The one-touch buttons consist of: power, resume and cancel for easy operation. The control panel also has two ink level lights that alert users when the ink needs to be replaced.
Access the ink cartridges through the pull down panel to the right of the control panel. The Deskjet D2660 uses a HP 60 black cartridge and a HP 60 tri-color cartridge. The HP 60 black cartridges contain at least 50% recycled plastic thanks to HP’s Closed Loop recycling process.
Underneath the removable panel resides the adjustable 80-sheet input tray. The tray folds up when not in use to keep the D2660’s footprint as small as possible. The D2660 supports multiple different paper sizes including: 4×6, 5×7, 8×10, envelopes, regular copy paper, etc.
Users can access the paper path through a pull out piece located on the back of the printer. The Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port and power port are also found on the back of the printer. The D2660 does not come with a USB cable so users may want to keep the cable from their previous printer or will need to buy a new one.
The Deskjet D2660 is made from 50% recycled materials and the packaging that it is shipped in is made from 100% recycled materials.
The HP Deskjet D2660 single function inkjet printer is available now through the HP website for an estimated retail price of $49.99. For information on HP’s sustainability practices visit our green resource center.
